I can attest to the fact that it has been an extraordinarily dry and hot January. The heat has not been of record highs, but of record duration: more consecutive days of hotter temperatures. The Labradors and I have been so hot, and though I sleep at night, it isn't proper sleep, which is why when there was a cool breeze this morning we all went back to bed and slept soundly for three hours. MrsDrWho said it rained at her house last night, but all we saw was thunder and lightning in the distance, no rain. It must all be in Spain on the plain. Nevertheless we are still walking every second day. The bush is very dry.
Harki and Peri heard something in the bush and then they were both ultra alert. They are very funny. It was a man jogging in the heat and when he actually jogged past, they were way in the bush, running after the sound they heard!! In the wrong direction.....
On Saturday I was sitting outside on the deck with my cup of tea reading away. I went inside and when I came back Harki and Lorelai Gilmore were doing synchronised lying. As soon as Lorelai Gilmore realised I had the camera she was up and running towards me. I don't know what she thinks, maybe that the camera is tasty??? They all lie in the Sun until they are too hot and then jump in the paddle pool.
The Dessert Buffet Outing lasted from 6-30pm till about 10pm. The Buffet had lots of fresh fruit, melons, strawberries and passionfruit. Yum, I especially liked the jelly lamington, berries, ice cream and strawberry sauce. My favourite!!
This afternoon, MrsDrWho and I watched The End of Time, the last two episodes of David Tennant's Doctor Who-dom. Usually I try not to pre-empt The ABC, but they promised Doctor Who on January 17th, but now it will be a whole month later. Suffice it to say there were tears, there was laughter, much amusement and many questions answered. RTD certainly had a plan, a plan from the very start of his reign. Now I just have to bide my time till Matt Smith's Doctor appears!!
